Catholic Priest Accused of Groping Woman During Last Rites

A 75-year-old Catholic priest in Texas was arrested after allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in hospice care while he was giving her last rites.

Rev. Gerold Langsch was called to the woman’s home while she was suffering from “several medical conditions.” After Langsch anointed her with holy water, he allegedly touched her inappropriately and asked her if it felt “good.” According to the Associated Press, The woman, who is still alive, reported that he fondled her breast and tried to grope her inside her adult diaper but failed.

Langsch posted bail of $15,000 and was ordered not to make contact with the woman. The Diocese of Austin said Langsch has been removed as the pastor of St. Paul’s Catholic Church.
